2) Legal clinic on city’s new tenant relocation assistance ordinance (March 15)

The Portland City Council recently approved an ordinance that requires landlords to pay tenants relocation assistance in the case of a no-cause eviction, rent increase greater than 10 percent or failure to renew or replace an expiring lease with substantially the same terms.

That ordinance is being challenged in court. Tenants who might take advantage of it if it survives that legal challenge can learn how at an upcoming city-sponsored clinic. The city has partnered with Oregon Law Center and Legal Aid Services of Oregon to host a free legal clinic.

4) Sunday Parkways returns to North Portland in June

Believe it or not, summer is right around the corner, and The Portland Bureau of Transportation has announced its schedule for the Sunday Parkways season. This nationally and internationally acclaimed series of Open Street events is celebrating its 10th year in motion. The streets will close to traffic so that bikers and walkers can enjoy safe tours of the city’s neighborhoods.

The North Portland Parkways will be on June 25. The route this year touches a corner of Overlook. Learn more about the event and routes in other neighborhoods on the official website.
